The Best New Year’s Resolution for Your Zodiac Sign
It’s time to cheers and celebrate! If you know you want to make a change, but you aren’t sure where to start, this guide will help you get a better idea of the best resolution for your sign in 2020.
Aries are ruled by Fire, always on-the-go. This year, challenge yourself to learn to slow down, or at least find a more relaxing outlet. You’re always trying to find new ways to move closer to your goals. And while all that fire is certainly useful to keep your passions burning, if you don’t tend to it, you’ll burn out. Learn to take some time to sit still.
Your New Year’s challenge, Taurus, is to become a bit more flexible. As an Earth sign, you’re very grounded—which can also read as stuck in your ways. And honestly, sometimes you can be. But this is a new year, a time to let yourself bend and snap with the tides of life. Learn to go with the flow every once in a while, you may find that you like the change of pace.
Geminis are ruled by Air, making them intellectual and thoughtful. You love to learn new things, but you don’t always feel confident enough to display your knowledge to the world. You need to resolve to put yourself out there more, trusting that everyone around you loves you for who you are, and will accept you however you choose to express yourself.
Cancers are a Water sign that is ruled by the Moon. Cancers will do just about anything for those they love, but they often forget to care for themselves. Your 2020 resolution is to practice more self-care, learning to spoil yourself when you need it - and even sometimes when you don’t. You won’t have the energy to be there for your friends if you don’t learn how to put yourself first.

Ruled by Fire and the Sun, Leos are optimistic and passionate about life. You love to be in the spotlight, but you may not spend quite enough time fostering your sense of self-worth without weighing against the opinions of others. You have to learn to love yourself no matter what anyone else thinks, Leo. This year resolve to forget about what other people think and do exactly what you want to do.
Earthy and responsible, Virgos tend to project their attention-to-detail onto others. While you might like for everyone to be just as analytical and detail-oriented as you are, that’s just not the way things are. Try to let others off the hook this year. Don’t worry about the pace that your peers are working at; as long as you’re moving towards your own goals, you’ll be fine.
Libras are an Air sign ruled by Venus, the planet of socialization. Libras spend a lot of time trying to make sure that their loved ones are comfortable, often forgetting to tend to their own needs. Try to force yourself to let others clean up their own messes this year, focusing instead on the tenderness and care that you should be extending to yourself.
As a Water sign, Scorpios can get weighed down in the waters of mystery that inhabit life. You tend to focus so much on the meaning of everything that you can forget to live in the moment. Your goal this year should be to focus on what you want to achieve more than what you feel is dragging you down. Concentrate on your desires, not your downfalls.
Sagittarians are ruled by Fire, and their passion for life is an excellent example of that fire. You love to have a good time, but sometimes that good time comes at the price of overindulging the things in life that can end up bringing you down. This year try to focus on building healthier habits and placing more importance on goals than a good time.
The Earth that rules over Capricorn makes them grounded and responsible, but they often focus too hard on paying their dues than paving their own way. You can branch out and actually create your own business if you want to, Capricorn. What’s stopping you? This year challenge yourself to take more risks and invest more in your worth.
As an Air sign, Aquarians are imaginative and innovative. You might have a million brilliant ideas in a day - and your challenge this year is to begin bringing those ideas to life. Don’t just think about ways to change the world, start implementing your genius inventions to actually make a difference. Your heart and mind are in the right place, you just have to believe in yourself.
The twin fish, Pisces, are ruled by Water and swim in the depths of their imagination. Your dreamy personality can take things a little too seriously, however. This year try not to take things so personally and let that fierce part of your nature unleash itself. You are strong and capable, Pisces - you don’t need the approval of others to achieve your goals.
